AN ACT to amend the labor law, in relation  to  workforce  training  for
  women

  THE  PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, REPRESENTED IN SENATE AND ASSEM-
BLY, DO ENACT AS FOLLOWS:

  Section 1.  Legislative intent. The legislature finds that  women  are
increasingly  responsible  for  the  economic security of their families
although more than a quarter of women-headed households in New York live
below the poverty level. Working women earn 80% of  what  men  earn  and
jobs  traditionally  held  by  women  pay  significantly  less than jobs
predominantly employing men. Workforce training programs have the poten-
tial to narrow the wage gap through training for, and referral to,  jobs
that  have  higher earning potential. Many higher paying jobs are tradi-
tionally dominated by men but could provide opportunities for women.  It
is  the  goal of the legislature that workforce training programs in New
York assist women job seekers with information and  services  that  will
help  increase  their earnings by encouraging them to seek higher paying
jobs and careers.
  S 2. The labor law is amended by adding a new section 10-c to read  as
follows:
  S  10-C.  WORKFORCE  TRAINING  FOR  WOMEN POLICY. THE DEPARTMENT SHALL
PROVIDE GUIDANCE AND ASSISTANCE TO STATE AND  LOCAL  WORKFORCE  TRAINING
BOARDS, PROGRAM ADMINISTRATORS AND STAFF, AND PARTICIPATING EMPLOYERS TO
IMPROVE  SERVICES  AND  TRAINING  FOR WOMEN TO QUALIFY FOR HIGHER PAYING
JOBS AND CAREERS. SUCH GUIDANCE AND  ASSISTANCE  SHALL  PROMOTE  PROGRAM
SERVICES FOR WOMEN JOB SEEKERS THAT PROVIDE:
  (A)  CURRENT  INFORMATION ABOUT COMPENSATION FOR JOBS AND CAREERS THAT
OFFER HIGH EARNING POTENTIAL INCLUDING JOBS  THAT  TRADITIONALLY  EMPLOY
PREDOMINANTLY MEN;
  (B)  SERVICES  SUCH  AS COUNSELING AND SKILLS DEVELOPMENT AND TRAINING
THAT ENCOURAGE WOMEN TO SEEK EMPLOYMENT IN SUCH JOBS; AND
  (C) REFERRALS TO EMPLOYERS OFFERING SUCH JOBS.
  S 3. This act shall take effect immediately.

 EXPLANATION--Matter in ITALICS (underscored) is new; matter in brackets
                      [ ] is old law to be omitted.
